The Mad Makers Showcase @ The Swan’s Nest

October 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Fremantle Industrial Arts Quarter presents The Mad Makers Showcase!
Live Art-Music- Market Stalls-Live craft demonstrations
Come and celebrate the official opening of the new town team The Fremantle Industrial Arts Quarter (FrIAQ). FrIAQ represents the unique quirky industrial area on the edge of Freo (between Amherst, Blinco, Montreal and Stack street) which is an incubator space for artists, creatives, and sustainable projects. Our aim is to activate and enrich the lustrous heritage of this forgotten gem of Fremantle.
We want to preserve and foster all that makes this area great: the quirky art, creative studios, and green spaces. The mixture of industrial warehouses and residential living makes this area so unique! We want to keep it that way and make it even better by injecting more colour, trees, and habitat.
We recently won our first grant and have been working on creating native bee and microbat habitat in the area as well as providing access to environmental workshops for residents.
Come meet your neighbours and share in all the quirky madness of the FrIAQ. We have an array of music, art, stall holders and food to delight your senses!
To keep your little ones happy, we have hands on eco activities by Eco Action and Activate the Wheatbelt including: native bee hotels, live insect interaction, face painting, seed bombs and more.
There will be some incredible local artists painting live during the event. This is a great opportunity to watch them work and perhaps add some colour to your own home (their artwork will be available for purchase)
